MUMBAI: Taproot has become the first agency of Indian origin to win the ‘Creative Agency of the Year‘ title at Adfest. It took home a total of 11 metals including a Grand Prix for the agency’s ‘I am Mumbai’ campaign for Mumbai Mirror (in the Lotus Roots Category) and a gold for the same campaign in the Film category.

Taproot, which was taken over by Japan‘s communication conglomerate Dentsu last year, has also won a Lotus Roots for its entry Abused Goddess (1-3 series) Save Our Sisters.

The success of Taproot at Adfest 2013 signals the arrival of Indian agencies on the global map. “Nothing can be better than this for us at AdFest. Hope we continue our momentum and live up to our clients and industry expectation in the coming years as well,” says an elated Santosh Padhi, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Taproot India.

In fact, it has been a healthy run for India at the Adfest. Says Scarecrow Communications founder director Manish Bhatt, “I think Taproot’s performance has been mind blowing. In fact, the country as a whole has put up a stellar show this year. I feel apart from the quality and quantity of work at these awards, what has tipped the scales in our favour is that we have more representation at the jury level. This way, the context of our work and the relevanace to our audience can be better explained and understood on the global stage.”

The winning list includes McCann Worldgroup India which took home six metals and Leo Burnett India which bagged three metals. Grey Worldwide India, DDB Mudra Group, BBDO India and Contract Advertising India won two metals each, while Scarecrow India got one metal at the creative award festival.
